Daddy's Tune Lyrics

A dirty wind blows through the sky
And the autumn leaves cut loose and fly
Leave me watching and wishing I could follow
Though among the regrets that I can't get by
There are just one or two unkind things I said to you

Daddy what was I supposed to do?
I don't know why it was so hard to talk to you
I guess my anger pulled me through

No sooner had I hit the streets
When I met the fools that a young fool meets
All in search of truth and bound for glory
And listening to our own heart beats we stood around the drum
Though it's fainter now the older I become

Living your life day after day
Soon all your plans and changes
Either fail or fade away
Leaving so much still left to say

But daddy I want to let you know somehow
The things you said are so much clearer now
And I would turn the pages back but time will not allow
The way these days just rip along
Too fast to last, too vast, too strong

Somewhere something went wrong
Or maybe we forgot the song
Make room for my forty-fives
Along beside your seventy-eights
Nothing survives but the way we live our lives
